Onshore Wind Visual Register

The council receives and determines planning applications for wind turbines and wind farms up to a 50MW capacity. These applications are dealt with by the Planning Authority under the Town & Country Planning (Scotland) Acts. Applications for wind farms greater than 50MW are dealt with by the Scottish Government's Energy Consents unit via a Section 36 application under the Electricity Acts.
